Good news first: I received a call this afternoon letting me know that my friend had her baby girl late last night! This is the same friend that I made the babyshower favors for (see previous post). She was due 2/10/08, her doctor scheduled her for a C-section on 1/22/08, but I guess little Lillian had other plans. She's healthy and a little peanut weighing in at 5lbs 5ozs...I can't wait to meet her!
Other good news: I bought a new car today - well I didn't want to buy a new, but I HAD to because my Honda is on it's last leg. I decided to try a lease this time around and got a pretty good deal on a 2008nNissan Sentra. I love the way it drives!
Not so good news: I got a phone call at 4:24 this morning...the time alone is enough to tell you that it wasn't good. On the other end was my sister's husband; I've played bits and pieces of our conversation in my head over and over but to make a long story short he found my sister shaking in her bed and unable to move a muscle or speak. He kept saying " I don't know if she had a seizure or a stroke" and I kept asking him if she was still breathing. By the time the ambulance arrived she was babbling incoherently. I was scared, he was scared and I know she was terrified! Definitely not the way to start the day. I called my mom and baby sister so one could go and stay with her kids and the other could go to the hospital and find out what was going on. I live an hour and a half away, so the only thing I could think to do was round up the "troops". By the time my baby sis arrived at the hospital, my sister was alert and talking which I was so thankful to hear! After a trillion tests the docs came to the conclusion that she had a minor heart attack!!! I've heard of it happening in people her age but I kept thinking, she's only 30! As her big sis, I had to let her know that it's time to slow down! We were talking last week and I kept telling her that she was doing too much that she needed to take a break. My exact words were "if you don't slow down, your body will find a way to slow down".
Life is just crazy! She was supposed to come up to my house today to watch Donovan while I taught my first scrapbook class, which I ended up canceling. Of course I had to joke with her about this. The first time I talked to her I said "you know, if you didn't want to watch Donovan for me all you had to do was tell me, all this shenanigans was unneccessary"! She got a good laugh out of that one! I'm so thankful she's OK and that her husband had the sense to get up and check her!
